As we are on holiday next week, I have not sent new books home. Some reading books (from various classes) have gone missing over the last term and staff need to gather everything together to count and replenish stock.

Thank you for all your hard work and support. Enjoy the break!

Chinese New Year


Posted by Jen Jamieson | Posted in Social Studies, Transition | Posted on 06-02-2014

Our Buddies in the nursery have been finding out about Chinese New Year. They came to work with us this morning to tell us all about their learning.
We watched a short film together.

Next, Mrs Munro told us a story about a Chinese Dragon. We worked with our Buddies to draw our own Chinese Dragons. Mrs Jamieson put the finished dragon pictures into a book so we can look at them together. Primary 1 had an important job to do when we were working together. They had to help the Nursery children find the drawing pens and colouring pens and show them where we put finished work in P1.
Afterwards, we helped our Nursery Buddies use the choosing board to play in learning areas. We had to show them where everything is kept and how we tidy things away when we are finished.
It was a busy morning!
